I have been going back and forth in my head about this summer and what I should really do. I decided to skip the summer theatre I usually “work” at because I interned twice and I wouldn’t get paid if I did this summer. I also don’t appreciate the summer past and it has left a sour spot in my life. I don’t want to go back. I have been thinking of other places and my professor said it would be good for me to do something over the summer that isn’t the same place.
This is the first time in two years that I have had a break longer than a week or any holidays. I am actually loving this feeling and I wonder if I should just take the summer off? I don’t know about you but I am really beat and mentally exhausted from all of the things I had to do this year.
If I do get a job though I still don’t have a car and the way for me to get a car with the insurance and all is not in sight so I can’t afford it right now and my father, who is teaching me to drive, doesn’t have a lot of time since my grandfather passed away. I don’t know what I should do. Would pursuing a summer job be worth it if I can’t make it? I am not sure.
Pros of not working: time for me to relax.
Cons for not working: gaining experience in the field.
I think that I will still send out my business letters and resumes just to get a feel for what people want from someone who is in theatre and focuses in costume design and technology.
